, i learned on the campaign trail. there's always a winner and loser. the political environment just like the business world, is highly competitive. with every campaign season there's always a new crop of start-ups. innovation incubators. and so, i guess the campaign is a little bit of an entrepreneurial showcase. i think a lot of us think we see these ads and i guess keeping the campaign is disliked a big marketing machine that spits out the ads we see on tv and the candidates are sending mail to us an e-mail to our in box and the phone calls and so forth. but if you peel back the curtain, you might find something. a something difference you find a very complex, highly detailed operation. there's a million things happening at once. there are things happening around the candidates, there are things happening around the headquarters operations, things happening in field offices. everything from where a candidate will stay, who will stand with the candidates, what site he should choose for that and how many people should come to the event and right down to the helium in the balloons an
in these situations? and this is an environment. the radio and tv environment, much like the search engine environment, where competition is always a click away. it was not a mouse click away. but competition was always a click away. you did not have to pay to switch. it was easy to switch in those situations. you might see how to market exercise power art to mark the answer is as the exercise market power to the volume and intensity of advertising, advertising is how you make money and the volume of advertising is how you do is how much money you can make. it is easy to start by thanking we did there is a lot of discussion about whether google has market power in the advertising market. that is not the place to start. the place to start is in search engine. a company with a great, successful product. but the company have market power? if they did, how would they go about exercising that? the answer is they would have more advertising. and because ads are a utility for consumers, consumers are not getting the content for free. they are getting the content by bearing the costs of that. i tried this the
didn't wait for washington nor international treaty and environment or anything like this. we just moved forward. i remember washington was never that enthusiastic about infrastructure. you know how much we are falling behind in infrastructure nationwide compared to the rest of the world. but we in california we said yes to infrastructure. and now we can see construction in schools and roads and affordable housing and other projects all over the state of california. washington said no to stem cell research. imagine, we said yes. and we invested $3 billion. as a matter of fact, right here at u.s.c. we have one of the great centers for staple-cell research, and they are drawing money for those $3 billion for their center. washington said no to our landmark climb change law. million solar roofs, list goes on and on. we said yes, yes and yes. and we moved forward. some of the most powerful solutions come from local government and also grass roots. people power. not from washington or paris or moscow or beijing. finally, i learned quickly that a post partisan way of governing is the mos
and will be good for our economy and is good for national security and it is good for our environment. [applause] we doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar here in nevada and all across the country. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and solar panels and long-lasting batteries. today the united states of america is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have got a choice. we can reverse this progress like governor romney wants to do, or we can build on it. unlike my opponent, i am not going to let the oil companies write our energy plan. i'm not going to let oil companies collect corporate welfare from our taxpayers. we have a better plan where we invest in wind and solar and farmers and scientists who are harnessing new biofuels to power our cars, where construction workers are building homes and factories that weighs less energy, and we are investing to get out 100-year supply of natural gas. we can create hundreds of thousands of jobs in nevada and all across the country, and cut oil import
the environment and something that was set in the debate last week. the president had the lead on energy and he said we were dealing now more than ever for gas and oil and he's right. then mr. romney came back with our bottle saying, mr. president, are drilling more for gas and oil, but it's not due to your policy. then he went on to say that because we are not drilling on federal and. why the president did not jump on that, i don't know. all the president would have to have said, was, mr. romney, do you think the american public would condone drilling in yellowstone? do you think the american public would condone drilling in yosemite? i just sat back from fly-fishing in montana and i was on federal land fly-fishing. i was on federal land where nothing is going on and i enjoyed that. i don't want to be fly-fishing next to an oil well or fracking liquid that is stored in pits that is poisonous. i just don't understand mr. romney saying we should be drilling like crazy on federal land. that just goes to show how he is uneducated about the circle of life in the natural environments. that's all i h
defense and build highways and education. and building an environment where it is easy for business to employ people and kind of stay out of everybody's way. host: how is it doing? caller: i do not think it is doing very well when minimum wage is hitting $10 an hour in some states. that is an awful lot to employ people. some people like myself, a small businessman, it is hard for me to employ more people when i am having to pay so much for everything in the price of everything is going up. the price of fuel, electricity, food -- the price of everything is going up right now. so i do not think the government is really doing a good job. host: it in the "wall street journal" this morning, another comparison of the two candidates on the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants a new economic patriotism. mitt romney caused the campaign a battle for the soul of america. host: next, louisiana, a democrat. good morning. caller: yes, i would like the government -- [no audio] host: we lost her. with apologies, let's move on to an independent in ohio. caller: good morning
political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. tho
, it will be despite his campaign. i think he grew up in a privileged environment, just like his father wanted to give everything he can. john mccain was someone isolated in his thinking somewhere along the way. also, his parents instilled upon him that because of those privileges, he had a responsibility and that his class had a responsibility to give back and to be a leader later. i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he wants to reorganize the government so that it is efficient. he can tell you 137 things he wanted to get done. i do not think mitt romney can tell you what he wants to do. he just wants to be a good president. because of that, if he is leavihe is weaving around out there. he was a very progressive governor until he started looking presidentially and then veered over. in the primaries very much over on the right. he did not want 50%. he wanted 51.1%. i am not saying he does not have principles. he does not have a political philosophy. he does that have things he wants to accomplish. because of that, the campaign is wondering. he is wondering. i thin
place. they set up a set just like it will look like in denver. they are used the environment. they have somebody to play the moderator and ask questions. obama does not like sound bites. they force him to give answers. they do whatever they can to simulate the debate situation. >> you quote a former chief of staff to boast -- to vice- president alkyl and joe -- al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points. -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more debt -- depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early. in the first half hour. a lot of the reporters will be writing their stories in the first half hour. you need to come out strong. if there is something you want to say, you have to say it right away. you suggest candidates, when they come out to the sage, right down three points they want to make. when you are w
be able, and security services, that would provide an environment to the citizenry to be able to express themselves politically and economically and socially, and also an armed force that would defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of syria. this sector, armed forces, intelligence services, the national police, would be apolitical. we thought of the many challenges ahead, and there are a number of challenges we have taken. we have taken lessons learned from iraq, from libya, and we are under no illusion that there would not be some measure of chaos the day after the collapse of the assad regime treat this may include a vengeance killings, civil disturbances, leaking, and certainly it will include an instrument of reaching power to try to destabilize the situation that is already highly unstable. we took together really all of the potential challenges that we face and head, and we tried to see the possible solutions for each. luckily for us, there are many regional military councils that have endorsed the principle of civilian authority over the military. this is good news. we
